Having problems with your HP Compaq Evo Notebook N600c ?

NOT WORKING I was using my evo n600c...and while it was doin updates for my computer..it just shut off. I try to turn the computer on and it opens up and says COMPAQ but then it goes to a black screen, with a little white bar flicking on and off in the left hand top corner. Does anyone know of any tips to fix this or what happened to my computer?


Answers :

Well actually the problem is slightly more complicated than your "OS is lost". You have damage to what is known as the MBR (Master Boot Record). This is a very solvable problem that technicians repair on a regular basis. However, it does require either a bootable floppy or CD-ROM. \015\012
\015\012If you have another computer that has a working CD burner then I recommend FreeDOS (download it here http://www.freedos.org/freedos/files/). If you choose to go this route post back I will give you more specific instructions. (For other experts: the fixmbr command will solve this issue as it is the corruption of the header)
Some way, you have lost your operating system. You should try to reformat your hard drive, and then install a fresh copy of your operating system. This has happened to me before, and what I am saying here is what I ended up having to do.

My HP Pavilion dv9005us has two issues which I cannot resolve. The wireless device is not even recognized or detected by the computer, and there seems to be an electrical problem where the lighted buttons at the top flicker on and off from time to time, which may also be linked to an issue where the computer will at times refuse to turn on after I press the on button and watch it all light up in response and immediately shut off. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
